It is structured like a traditional running shoe, but the clever people at Mizuno have somehow ZAPPED the weight out of it, making it one of the most durable, yet lightweight shoes on the market. In fact, the NEW U4iC midsole is about 30% lighter than the midsole in the previous Wave Inspire 9, but still offers the same amount of cushioning.
Another NEW feature is the blown rubber outsole which again is lighter, but just as durable as the previous rubber outsole of the Mizuno Wave Inspire 9. It is classified as a mid-mileage running shoe. A runner should expect to get 400+ kms (no more than 600km) out of the shoe.
For those who haven’t tried on Mizuno shoes BE AWARE that it is a whole lot firmer than other brands, mostly because of the fan plate technology throughout the shoe. This is made out of a thermoplastic material, and instead of “absorbing” the body’s shock, it “distributes” it throughout the shoe…
The Mizuno Wave Inspire 10 is best suited for a mild overpronator, as it has medial support from the dual fan wave plate technology. Like the majority of Mizuno running shoes, it has the forefoot flex groove, which helps promote forefoot propulsion as you run.
Overall, the NEW Mizuno Wave Inspire 10 gives a lightweight ride for every stride! The top features of this shoe include the EXTRA lightweight midsole and outsole, flexible forefoot, adaptable upper which caters to different widths of feet, the supportive fan plate and general firmness. The Wave Inspire 10 has just been released to Joggers World Adelaide, so get in quick to try a pair on to experience these unique features yourself!
